  • hill climb training, sort of ;)

    it fucking hurt with the heat and riser bars. but all part of my new HTFU policy.

    i wanted to ride all the way down on sunday (not just from Haywards Heath), but a long days graft on saturday put paid to that idea!

  • elvis - what start time do you have on sunday? and what ratio you using?

    not sure i will ride all of it feel a few hills may get the better of me!!

    where we meeting on wed then?

  • I'm meant to be riding it with my dad and so I won't beleive it until we're actually on the bikes in the morning! If we did, we'd probably meet up with the ride around woodmansterne near Banstead/Chipstead about 7?

    I'll be riding 42-16 (69%) which seems right for most hills.

    On the where question, might be too early for a pub so possibly a cafe?

  • Hey Lewis, I came in the shop on Friday and bought a new cog so I have half a chance of getting up Southover st. Anyway a chap had a quick go at getting my current cog off and had no luck, can you let me know when the shops a bit quieter so someone could have another go at shifting it.
    Or if anyone else out there thinks they could help me get this darn cog off...

  • Rich, try this in technique but in reverse: http://204.73.203.34/fisso/eng/schpignon¬≠e.htm

    Or take off the lock ring and skid the hell out of it until it loosens

  • i'm up for a wednesday ride, would be best to meet at the track - get to see a race or two before we set out.

    btw - i can highly recommend Baker St Bikes, always helpful, friendly and excellent wheel builders!! been going there for years and don't have a bad word to say about them. support local, independent businesses!!!

  • alright guys i need to know this evening where we are all meeting as come straight from work and dont have the internet at work!! rubbish i know some stupid work rule! but i leave tomorrow!

    oh and a rough time everyone is meeting

  • RichC bring your wheel down the track im sure we can get that cog off 4 u :-)

    if you like i can bring my cog/lockring tool along tomorrow if you about, or try popping in in the morning it usually quieter then! we should be able to do it there and then

  • ok, lets say meet at the track for 7ish and watch some racing/see who turns up. and of course eat cake and drink some tea.

    Paul, i think the track is the meeting place. probably about seven?

    i'm looking less likely to be there now, gf stuff. we'll see.

  • track sounds great. i'll get there 6:30 ish - be good to see whoever and get a little spin in too.

  • see you there. i might go down straight from work and stick the track cog on - have a blast around the track - nice to get some speed up for a change!

  • i should be there around 6-30ish too on a black langster with risers, grey t shirt come say hi as i am fairly new and dont know any faces.

    see ya later

  • Hey guys, ive riden in brighton for about year now, ride a real uncool baclk fuji with two brakes and a bottle! Ride at the track now and then and along the coast a load.

    PS. Lewis, its BMX george.

  • so regardless of whether we are doing the l2b we all meeting for a pint and ice cream on sunday

  • i will be in need of both when i get to the seafront! so if any of you fancy a few beers and an ice cream come join me!

    hope to be back by lunch time

  • Cheers Lewis I'll try n get by the shop 2mrw morning, if not catch up with you guys at some point and try and change it then, thanks again for all your offers of help.

  • Welcome on here, George!

  • Just spotted a helmet-less rider heading into town along lewes rd riding a cougar track - black with red writing... local?

    also spotted a rider heading towards lewes rd this morning on a white (?) conversion with blue bar tape.

    two new people in one day!

    welcome George, maybe see you down the track next week?

  • how was the ride yester? my work do was completely underwhelming

  • lazy, so therefore good.

    wore myself out with some stunning tea and cake action at the track, though.

  • Hi Andy that was me - we passed in the Lewes Road traffic a few weeks back - the Cougar is my other black bike. The one you saw me on the other day has just died, or gone into a bicycle coma from which it will not recover until I'm rich enough to repair it.

  • ah. i thought i may have been you but didn't recognize the bike. looked nice though!

  • Cheers - it is a nice old frame - the main triangle and forks are 653, which although nice and light does sometimes cause me worries when cycling down the XC track that is the Lewes Road, especially as my other one has just cracked.
